Her interests quickly shifted to the folk textiles of Japan where she has had two extensive stays to study kasuri and sashiko. During covid she started researching and adapting sashiko stitching patterns to weaving and is now co-writing a book on the subject. She has written on sashiko ori for VAV magazine and designed a project for Handwoven.
